In addition to the XboxOne, he has a Wii U now and even might be considering buying a PS4 so if he does do a list it might be more diversified. YEAH RIGHT, it's just gonna be tropico, civ, SFII on virtual console, Joust and probably The Warriors.

Mary will be scared off by some of the more stalkerish, creepy, obsessive, banana riding sycophants in this community. If you don't think so you should take a peek at her twitter feed. It's downright embarrassing.

Let me get this straight. The guy who tried to cook egg shells and thought he was cooking egg whites says that the robbery happened while both he and his roomate were home sleeping.

Inside job, roomate I'm callin it.

Cool for Vinny that he got to do voice work for TV Guide videos. I wouldn't worry him leaving GB though guys this might be a side job of his.

Vinny kind of has already "left" GB. It seems that he is on the books officially as more of a CBSi east production guy helping out whatever properties need it. For accounting purposes he is not considered GB headcount anymore. Instead of announcing he was taking a new role they spun it into this GB east thing so the community didn't flip out. That is the only reason they were allowed to hire two staff. One to replace Ryan and one to replace Vinny.

I downloaded it from PSN and didn't have any issues. Though whenever I start the game it seems the initial load time is pretty long. I don't know if it is just the PSN version or if the disc version does this too. I also am down to just 11gb of 250 gb free on my harddrive so I am not sure if that has something to do with it as well.

I noticed this in the amazon listing for the Persona 4 artbook and thought it was interesting. Even though they made some sort of announcement of Persona 5 why would they allow that wording in the description for the Persona 4 book.

"Featuring the character designs of Shigenori Soejima! Go behind the scenes of Persona 4, the final game of the landmark Persona series! Inside you''ll find character designs, rough sketches, backgrounds and settings, an exclusive interview with the game''s creators, and more!"

For being a "behind the scenes" guy Matt Rorie sure does spend a lot of time on camera. Maybe he should focus more on getting the video player resolved and overseeing that process. I still don't quite understand how he was supposed to replace Dave seeing as he doesn't seem to have the same skillset. Looks like they created some sort of role where his skills fit better but all I know as an end user is the site slowly getting worse. Aside from the video player issues the download speeds can be unreliable as well. This is maddening because the only reason I am downloading is because the video player doesn't function.

I wonder what the odds are that Dave simply could not make progress on getting the sites issues resolved for whatever reason (engineering, management, etc) post relaunch and his kid was a convenient excuse for him to throw up his hands and exit.

I guess I am not surprised. CBSi is only interested in Giant Bomb as long as it is profitable. Fixing these issues takes money and money takes away from profit. As long as they can keep enough users happy to where they profit then they are probably content. I know I don't plan on renewing in September due to the various technical issues combined with the overall lack of content I feel they are putting out. It just seems to me that the GB crew's heart is not in this site anymore. I think what we will see is continued output from Alex and Patrick so they can justify their cost but the in office guys just kinda going through the motions. I would love to be wrong about this.
